Does anyone have them or know where I might find them? It sounds like a good song, though I've only ever heard the first stanza.

When I went to the book signing for A Feast for Crows, Martin said he has never completely written any of the songs in his novels. He just writes the lyrics he needs. So if only the first verse appears in the novels, it's probably the only verse that exists.

And who are you, the proud lord said,
That I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
That's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
A lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
As long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
That lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
With no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
And not a soul to hear.

Doesn't seem to predict any bright future for the Freys does it? What a dolt Walder is to pick that song.

For some reason I've always loved that little song, I think it is very well used throughout the books, and a strong symbolic symbol as well.

O, and I just like the sound of it as well (even more then the bear the bear..)

I could never really get into songs from fantasy novels. I appreciate poetry, which is essentially what a song is, but knowing it's a song makes me want to put a rhythm to it. Problem is, I don't know the rhythm, nor can I make one up that fits so the song always sounds lame in my head.

i just asked someone if someone has the lyrics of the songs of ASOIAF, cuz i need them, it's my business.
so: if someone is so kind to give me the favor i'll be very pleased of it, this is the reason why i write in this forum, not to discuss about songs and poetry.

This might be the worst song in the world. I want to break down and cry every time I see the words Rain and Castamere together.

It reminds me of that soul crushing feeling I got (Spoilers please highlight) the moment when the Starks were loading into the Twins only to be slaughtered at their own wedding feast. It produces pictures of Rob Starks body with Grey Winds head sewn on his body :( Delete this thread!
